Space-based monitoring and mapping of lightning has recently enjoyed substantial progress due to two extremely successful optical imagers, the Optical Transient Detector, or OTD [Boccippio, D. J. et al., 2000], and the Lightning Imaging Sensor, or LIS [Christian, H. J. et al., 1999]. Progress has also been made on defining the utility of broader types of lightning observations in general, as a proxy for deep tropospheric convection [Boccippio, D. J. et al., 2000: Petersen, W. A. and Rutledge, S… Expand
